Just One Job... May Change My Life

United States Marine Corps.

Do some pushups on the floor.

Run the mile more and more.

Training for the war.


Defend my country left and right.

US Marines, oh what a sight.

Breathing heavy, muscles tight.

I'll keep fighting, day and night.


Until we are home, safe at last.

Spend years of reminiscing of the past. 

Crawling slow and running fast. 

"Boy, did I have a blast!"
